Culturally Responsive Teaching (Brown University)

Culturally Responsive Teaching

This Brown University website recognizes the importance of culture in learning.  It lists the “What”, “Why” and “How” of  the seven aspects of culturally responsive teaching.   These aspects include positive perspectives on parents and families, communicating of high expectations, as well as allowing students to learn within the context of their culture. Furthermore, teacher instruction should be student-centred and culturally mediated.   These principles can be applied to our everyday classroom.
